I graduated with BA/MA(1st Hons) in Architecture from the University of Edinburgh, awarded in June 2021. My RIBA part1 practising periods in Foster+Partners, CallisonRTKL, and Wilson Architecture OMMW enabled me to participate in a few large-scale (over 200,000 sqm) mixed-use projects in Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Beijing.
My postgraduate study starts at the Architectural Association (AA), where I explore the publicness and porosity of architectural objects. From October 2022, I will continue my Master’s degree (RIBA Part II) at the University of Cambridge and join the Martin Centre research team led by Professor Koen Steemers.
The forthcoming research project focuses on sustainable urban design and circular maker cities in the Chinese socio-economic/political and environmental context. The research scope includes but is not limited to sustainable regeneration strategies for Chinese slum transformations (e.g. collapsing villages, dilapidated inner-city housing) and a Circular Economy framework that connects architecture, materials, law, politics of labour and economy.
